South Carolina Society of the
Order of Founders and Patriots of America

Founded 2007

Fall 2012 Bulletin

The 2012 Spring gathering of the South Carolina Society of The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America and guests took place in historic Camden, SC during the first weekend of May. Basing ourselves at well-appointed Springdale Hall enabled us to experience Southern hospitality at its best, while two arranged speakers and a guided bus tour of the area provided informed exploration of one of the most overlooked, though truly important areas of confl ict of the Revoluti onary War.

Our dinner speaker on the Revoluti onary War in the South, and Camden in particular, was Dr. Jim Piecuch, who is currently a professor at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. Dr. Piecuch earned his Ph.D. in history from the College of William and Mary in Virginia and is the author of several books and arti cles concerning colonial and revolutionary America; these include, The Battle of Camden: A Documentary History; Three Peoples, One King: Loyalists, Indians, and Slaves in the Revolutionary South, 1775-1782; and Cool and Deliberate Courage: John Eager Howard in the American Revoluti on. He brought these and other publications along for purchase and signing.
